Determined to show interesting films in Nairn as suggested by those who want to watch them ie not the regular "blockbusters" but classics and lesser-known gems from around the world. Films are currently screened in the Nairn Community & Arts Centre on King Street (just off the A96) and occasionally in The Little Theatre (also in King Street but in Fishertown).
Screening may sometimes be cancelled or films substituted (for reasons beyond our control such as licencing and/or distribution rights) please check for latest information and before travelling any distance.

Cinema Nairn has a growing mailing list and should you wish to add your name to that list please contact us along with any films that you would like to suggest. Once we programme the screenings for the next few months we will be publicising them widely and regularly to try and increase the audience size.
The five films we have shown to date are just the start and we hope that in addition to regular monthly film nights that we may stage other (perhaps themed) screenings or films related to other events going on in the Nairn area ie Book & Arts Festival, Jazz Festival, Nairnshire Challenge.
